Lovely ledge on Sipapu trail

Lovely ledge on Sipapu trail

The trail from the canyon rim down to Sipapu natural bridge drops down quickly and is well engineered. Here we travel a scenic shaded portion of that trail.

After many decades of "stopping by" Natural Bridges National Monument but never taking the time to hike in the area, we finally made the time. This was perhaps the most enjoyable hiking we did of the entire road trip, including the Grand Gulch backpacking trip on Thursday and Friday.


3. Wednesday 20th April 2011
We left our Blanding motel room early and headed back to Natural Bridges National Monument for a day hike there. We had lucked out with good weather the previous day and this day was no exception. I’m so pleased when weathermen get it wrong, and the weather is BETTER than predicted.

We hiked down to Sipapu natural bridge, then took a short hike up the small box canyon behind it; then up White Canyon a half a mile or so; and then returned to Sipapu natural bridge where we hiked down the canyon to Kachina natural bridge.

The hike down the canyon from Sipapu to Kachina natural bridge was one of the prettiest, most enjoyable hikes we took on this road trip. We didn’t meet one other hiker on the entire stretch and the hike was scenic and fun. We spent quite a bit of time below Kachina natural bridge where we met another couple our age from Flagstaff. David and Sherry exchanged some road trip stories with us, before we hiked on up to the rim of the canyon to the Kachina natural bridge trail head.

At the rim it was about 2.5 miles to hike the one way road back to our pickup truck at the Sipapu natural arch trailhead. Instead we opted to take “Mesa Trail” back to our truck. It was a little shorter route, though the ups and downs and occasional “lost cairns” on the slickrock sections certainly made it more interesting than “road walking”.

It was on this trail at 6,225’ that we had yet another surprise. Six feet off the trail was a rattlesnake. Unlike most that we have encountered in our hikes in the Southwest (we lived in Arizona for three years), this one had an “attitude”. Though we never approached it, it stayed in its coiled “striking” poise even when we stood still and at a distance. It frequently buzzed the air with its 8 to 10 button rattle.

We stepped off the trail to give this rattlesnake even more berth than the six feet off trail offered it, but as we hiked on by, it was still “coiled to strike” and buzzing its tail. Must have had a bad day.

After we got to our truck we drove on around the loop and took a quick walk down to take a look at Owachoma natural bridge. We then drove back to Blanding, stopping for one short hike along the way. We finished off this fun day with a big meal (one of several) at the Homestead Steak House in Blanding. GREAT FOOD THERE!

Ed (Flickr’s “oldwrangler”) and I had “found” this eating spot on our road trip together in March of 2011. My wife and I went back again and again to enjoy some of the best food I have ever found in a small town small cafe. Some of our favorites we sampled were:
A French dip sandwich (made with melted Swiss cheese, green pepper and onions).
An open face roast beef sandwich. Navajo Taco (my wife’s favorite), made with Navajo fry bread. Linguini Alfredo….and so on. Try as we did, neither of us ever had room at the end of a meal to try their black berry cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream. A reason to return for sure.

Wednesday night at the motel, we packed our backpacks for the next day’s trip into Grand Gulch. I checked the latest weather forecast for the area on the motel’s free use, office computer, and then we got a good night’s sleep.


CEDAR MESA ROAD TRIP 17-26TH APRIL 2011 ~ Mr. & Mrs. Oldmantravels

In all we spent ten days and nine nights on the road, camping in the back of our pickup truck two nights, sleeping in our backpacking tent in Grand Gulch, and the other six nights luxuriating in the comforts of a motel room. Gas prices ranged from a low of $3.56 a gallon to $3.89, which was the highest we paid on this trip. We saw several $4.00 a gallon signs along the way.

Our figure 8 route took us through portions of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, and Nevada. We drove a couple of roads we had never traveled; met some truly wonderful people; took many interesting day hikes to places we had never been, and tried out some new internal frame backpacks on a short backpacking trip into Grand Gulch.

Most of our activity, and time spent, was centered around the Cedar Mesa area of Southeastern Utah. Though the weather forecast did not look favorable for the first portion of our time in Utah, it turned out fine. It wasn’t until the return portion of our road trip, where we ran into several storms (thunder and lightening storms, a nasty hail storm, and a few snow storms thrown in).

If any of you are interested, in for whatever reason on following the travel portion of our road trip, you can co

DAY 06: Over night halt – SPANGMIK

Altitude: 4, 250m / 13, 943ft.

The sun has retired in the west corner behind the mountains. Things around are barely visible in the last faint bluish purple glow. The lake does no longer glisten having turned deep shades, still except for the slight crease on the surface like a crinkled cloth.

Rikzen will drop Major Saroha in the barrack. Shalini and Andrea gets down about a kilometer ahead, as they want to walk their way back.

Once inside (the tent) take off the boots and slip in between the blankets, throb in the head demands the much-needed rest. Pour a glass of warm water from the flask at the bedside table (the manager, Capt. Vaidya has advised us to drink only warm water after sundown). Generator will be switched on in about 10 minutes from now and run till dinner gets over (19:30 – 22:30 hrs), but the faint darkness provides cocoon comfort, the wind beaten flapping noise of the tent quite rythmic.

Considering the difficulty in transporting goods in this region and defying the under staff problem, buffet at dinner is lavish.

Most of the staff and residents of the nearby villages have gone to Leh for attending the speech to be delivered by H.H. Dalai Lama in the next two days. The influence which he has over not only the Tibetan population in exile, but also the entire Buddhist community in Ladakh is astonishing.

Dining tent to lake bank is a slight walk, but very cold and immensely strong wind makes it difficult.

The sky will surely fall any moment, having exceeded its capacity to hold the celestial bodies. Small inky blue waves sweep a quick fan over the shore, leaving behind a faint black rim. On the other side, dark cluster of mountains have caught the uneven glow of the night sky. Somewhere, from deep within arises a sense of freedom; no longer I walk in the grief garden.

Note: There is a strange vignette effect in this shot, which is not due to any treatment!!!

From the cozy confines of a tiny seaside village to the glittering crush of the a fashionable London soiree comes an enthralling tale of a thoroughly mismatched couple . . . poised to discover the rapture of love.

There was no doubt about it. What Miss Harriet Pomeroy needed was a man. Someone powerful and clever who could help her rout the unscrupulous thieves who were using her beloved caves to hide their loot. But when Harriet summoned Gideon Westbrook, Viscount St. Justin, to her aid, she could not know that she was summoning the devil himself. . . .

Dubbed the Beast of Blackthorne Hall for his scarred face and lecherous past, Gideon was strong and fierce and notoriously menacing. Yet Harriet could not find it in her heart to fear him. For in his tawny gaze she sensed a savage pain she longed to soothe . . . and a searing passion she yearned to answer. Now, caught up in the Beast’s clutches, Harriet must find a way to win his heart–and evade the deadly trap of a scheming villain who would see them parted for all time.
